Abstract

Tourism is a sector with a broad multi-player effect and provides opportunities for the industry to flourish through services for tourist’s needs. This study discusses the role of handicraft industries in Malang City as souvenir supplier network in the Bali tourism market. In particular, the study was conducted to examine the process of innovation in the development of handicraft products in Malang to supply tourism demand for authentic Balinese handicrafts. The study shows that innovation behavior and product development process is driven by design from intermediaries rather than creation offered by producers. This indicates that intermediaries have more accurate information about market preferences compared to handicraft producers. Thus, the producers of handicraft in Malang tend to position themselves as a “producing farmer” rather than a designer to ensure the continuity their subsistence and do not yet of having adequate knowledge to penetrate directly to the tourist market in the Island of Bali.
